Under 12's beat Dockers
In their first game of the season at the Leisure centre the Under 12's proved too strong for Dockers.
The game started at a fast pace with both teams testing the opposition try line, defences stayed strong though and opportunities were limited. It was Beverley who broke the deadlock when full back Alex Argent-Moss cleanly took a kick on his own try line and burst through the Dockers defence, whilst he was bought down on the half way line quick hands created an opening for Archie Harwood to go over. Dockers responded strongly to this set back and were only denied when John Saunders and Joe Coates combined to make a try saving tackle. Dockers played with a strong wind behind them in the first half and attempted a number of kicks to put pressure on the Beverley line. It was following one of these kicks, which was shepherded over the dead ball line, that Beverley struck again. From the restart Tom Rea made one of his many strong runs scattering a number of defenders then from a quick play the ball Alex Argent-Moss received the ball and sped over the line to score in the corner.
Beverley now started to get on top and the introduction of Hayden Todd on his debut gave the team a real lift. From a scrum just inside the Dockers half Beverley scored their third try when a clever short side move created space for Will Farr, who had moved from his usual position of prop on to the wing, he beat two defenders to go over in the corner. half time 12-0.
Following a few positional changes Beverley took a little time to settle in the second half but defensively they remained strong led by Man of the Match Archie Harwood and Aaron Dibnah. Eventually Beverley settled and started to play some good rugby and when Joe Coates received the ball just inside the dockers half he cleverly cut back inside to find a gap and go over under the posts, Ryan Westerman converted. From the Kick Off Beverley went straight back down the pitch with the ball ending up with Joe Coates who scored his second in as many minutes.
To their credit Dockers came back strongly and forced their way over for a well deserved try however the final try of the match went to Beverley when Sam Davies went over from close range. A good team performance from Beverley with Archie Harwood the Man of the Match.
